complex instruction set computing (CISC)
a processor architecture design in which large, complicated instructions are broken down into smaller tasks before the processor executes them
data line
an electrical line, or circuit, that carries data; specifically in RAM chips, a circuit that determines whether a bit represents a 0 or a 1
drain
the part of an electrical transistor where electrical current flows out of the transistor when it is closed
gate
a microcircuit design in which transistors are arranged so that the value of a bit of data can be changed
megahertz (MHz)
a measurement, in millions, of the number of times something oscillates or vibrates. processor speeds are normally measured in megahertz
reduced instruction set computing (RISC)
a processor design in which only small, quickly executing instructions are used
